The more and more that I see of AoC the more excited I get. Since the game is heavily in development I don’t want to sell you on the game yet. I have been a part of enough Tenacious launches and chapters that most people understand it really doesn't matter about the game. It matters about who you play with. And the biggest thing I can say is that my goal is to play with as many of you that are willing to join this epic chapter with me. This game is not as far off as we think, it seems the game may be looking toward a 2019 launch, which if that is the case, we have a lot of work to do. This game is an open world sandbox. There are dungeons, there is open world PvP, there are plenty of lifeskills. The most important aspect of this game will be working together to achieve goals such as conquering villages, triggering world events, waging wars and most importantly hanging out with crew. This post is to just keep you guys updated and excited for what to expect. - Organized and Professional leadership team. @Averie will be playing. Ive had the pleasure of gaming with some incredible officers and will do my best to trumpet up as many of them as possible from out of the wood works to help with this chapter. Im expecting roughly 20 or so officers at launch. Get ready to get to work! - A fully financed guild thanks to their referral program. If you haven’t paid for any packages yet, its important to use this link to create your account: https://www.ashesofcreation.com/ref/LoanWolf/?campaign=Tenacious - ^ This gives us an awesome unique opportunity to fun an entire chapter from 15% of all the money we spend on this game. Guild Events, Giveaways, Etc. It’s a nice addition and my wallet appreciates it. - Expectations of 250+ Tenacious members at launch. Guild details are vague at the moment, Ive heard guild caps from anywhere from 150-300. If the guild can harbor a strong 300 tenacious player base then we will have 1 guild, if not we will most likely have 2 guilds. There will not be a cap of how many members we have. If our guild holds 100 people and we have 101 sign up we are creating another guild. If we have 2 guilds with 150 people in it and more people join we will make a third guild. Everybody will be in a Tenacious guild and we will all be working together. There may be different specializations depending on the guild system but we will approach that. This will be a difficult task and we will be prepared with as many leaders and officers needed in order for this to run smoothly. There will be no “alt guild” or “sister guild” all guilds are equal in their representation and voice and we are all one Tenacious. - A guild that will push the limits of what casual gamers are capable of. We will show the gaming community once again what Hardcore at Heart, Casual by Nature truly means. We will set goals for the guild and work together to achieve them. We each have our different styles of gaming and different goals but the aspect that makes us such fierce competitors is how we use all of our talents in order to work together toward a goal. And usually we shatter expectations. - Inside access to all Alpha content. Im already going to be a part of Alpha 1 and 2 and will be sharing as much knowledge I can to give us solid plans into Beta. Testing testing testing testing. Anybody that is a part of the Alphas let me know. - Possible specialization of Orders may return. Order of Warfare (PvP), Order of Commerce (LifeSkill) and Order of Exploration (PvE). This will help us organize and assist each other. More information will come when more details of the game are announced. ... But Loan, the game isn’t coming out for another year. A year?? There's not enough time in the day to prepare for a launch like this! Trust me when I say that this Chapter will be an experience that you will remember for a lifetime. When you are sitting back at Myrtle Beach 2043 you will tell the young new recruits of the times in Ashes of Creation. ... But Loan how do you even know the game is going to be good? I play mmorpgs with Tenacious for the people. We can only control what we can. I expect us to launch this chapter with around 300 Tenacious members! How the hell are we not going to have an absolute blast!? ... But Loan, a launch of this size is going to be a lot of work. Is Tenacious ready for a chapter so large? Tenacious has the capability of launching chapters in an extraordinary way. We have had large chapters in Rift. Tera, Revelation, BDO, Archeage, Skyforge you name it! It is not uncommon for us to have 300 man rosters. It doesn’t happen by just making a sign up sheet and inviting people until you reach 300. There is so much planning and behind the scenes work that goes into something like this. I’ve never been in a chapter with you LoanWolf, what can I expect? I do not put my name on something lightly. Anybody who knows me will attest to that. I take full pride in the fact that I will never ask somebody to do something that I am not willing and doing myself. I am not kidding in the fact that I feel that I don’t have enough time for a launch that is a year out (maybe more). I will put my entire soul into this chapter to ensure that everybody has a good time. Having fun is the top priority. Winning, being the best, completing things first doesn’t matter if you cant have a good time doing it. It’s easy to make a hardcore chapter or a casual chapter or a PvP chapter or a PvE chapter but taking a ton of gamers who have all different interests, playstyles, wants and expectations is one of the most difficult things to do in the MMORPG genre. There is not a damn place in the world that does this better then us. As for myself, I have never asked anyone to ever respect me. If you have never been a part of one of my chapters I can guarantee that I will do everything possible to earn your respect. Plus, I have an unfair advantage of coming with an @Averie. So what are you waiting for?? Click that damn referral link and sign up for AoC already!
